AT THE DOCK: Ferry services to Greek islands and nearby Italy were halted Tuesday by a 48-hour strike that left thousands of islanders stranded and disrupted holidaymakers' plans at the start of the country's vital tourism season.
THE CAUSE: Organized to coincide with the Orthodox Easter this Sunday, the strike was called after The Panhellenic Seamen's Federation, PNO, failed to strike a deal with the government over cuts to its members' pension and health care plans.
HARDEST HIT: While larger islands have regular airline connections, the strike has cut many smaller islands off from the mainland.
